Eddie Vedder postpones solo trek due to nerve damage
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has postponed his impending solo outing, rescheduling most dates for the fall as he continues to deal with nerve damage in his right arm.
Originally scheduled to kick off April 10 in Las Vegas, the acoustic run will now get underway Oct. 31 in Sin City. All of the shows have been rescheduled except for his May 3 appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which has been canceled.
Glen Hansard of The Swell Season and The Frames will join Vedder on the fall outing.
Tickets for the original shows will be honored at the newly-scheduled shows, and refunds are available upon request at the point of purchase.
"After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled," Vedder's manager, Kelly Curtis, explained in a press release. "There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful. Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets. Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form."
Vedder unveiled "Ukulele Songs," his second solo album, last May. The album, released via Pearl Jam's Monkeywrench Records, features original and cover songs performed by Vedder on ukulele.
